1. Need to nationalize the Mega Corporations

They are destroying America. We need to either tax them properly or just Nationalize them. We could do far better with the administration running them then not getting any beneift from them. We won with doing that with GM and now they are a highly efficient profitable company again.

3. So the Government would spend half a trillion of our tax dollars to purchase Apple?

That is an excellent, wonderful idea.

4. Seize them if they don't pay taxe

This would be used to take care of our deficit issues. No reason not to take what is rightfully belongs to the tax payers. Apple is a sucess because we built it. The people of the America and the World. They have a civic responsiblity to pay taxes.

6. Unconstitutional. Fair compensation needs to be paid.

And that will be the market value of the company.

Of course, if Apple is illegally not paying taxes, they need to be billed for the balance, plus interest and penalties. But seizing the entire company would be overkill to say the least.

2. The most important piece of data in politics is the last line, the bottom SIXTY percent own 2.3% of

the wealth.

The second most critical information is income which is little better.

5. That needs to change

The President has a mandate from November to equlaize the wage disparity and hopefully he will accomplish it during his term. Enogh greed by the mega corporations and their leaders. This is the era of Labor. We need to get control of what we produce and share the beneifits with all Americans.

9. Large corporations and the wealthy are not like you and I: our government has decided they should

not be much burdened with income taxes like we, that they should be able to slop mightily at the public welfare trough mostly unfettered by such nettlesome nuisances as paying an equitable portion of the income tax burden.
